The city of LaFayette has approved plans for a new terminal at city-owned Barwick-LaFayette Airport.

The terminal, which is funded mainly through $500,000 in state tobacco settlement money, will have a Southern feel, said architect David Cameron of LaFayette.

Built of stone-hued brick, the terminal will feature a metal roof, a veranda facing the airstrip and a carriage porch out front.

The new 2,600-square-foot terminal will be more than twice the size of the dilapidated, metal-sided terminal it’s replacing.

Construction should get under way this summer.

City officials hope the new terminal building will help attract new businesses and retain existing employers.
